It is very likely that you will be feeling a bit down when it’s all over and the excitement has passed. All the hype, butterflies and build-up has come and gone, and all that you’re left with is a very deflated bank account and the realisation that your relationship hasn’t suddenly changed overnight.

  • Your passport
  • Your drivers licence
  • Your bank account and bank cards
  • Your municipal and telephone accounts
